 What's New

“Launch of the Economic Development Public Private Partnership in North Carolina (EDPNC)” was the topic of the NCBIO Biotech Manufacturers Forum in December.  “This new effort presents North Carolina as a total package,” John Loyack, VP, Global Business Services, of the Partnership told members. The new nonprofit will take over the economic development, international trade and tourism, film and sports development activities previously provided by the NC Department of Commerce.   Loyack and Bill Bullock, VP, Bioscience Industrial Development of the NC Biotechnology Center discussed how the two organizations will work together to support the life science industry in the state.  Loyack says the new model will be a proactive and more collaborative organization that is more efficient, transparent and accountable.
